tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  April 30, 2011 2:00am-3:00am EDT

2:00 am
and good evening, everyone. it's been an extraordinary day here in london, and it's 3:00 a.m. they're still celebrating in buckingham palace, where the lights may be dimmed and off, the external lights. but inside, several hundred friends of william and catherine are drinking and dancing the night away. the happy couple now called the duke and dutch else of cambridge. today, a global audience coming together for a few moments to pause and watch a young couple start their new lives together. and heir to the throne and his college sweet heart exchanging vows. >> will you love her, comfort her and keep her in sickness and health and forsaking all other, keep thee only unto her so long as you shall both live? >> will you love him, honor and keep him in sickness and health
2:01 am
and forsaking all over, keep him for as long as you both shall live? >> i will. >> not vowing to obey. it all went off flawlessly. there was one shaky moment for prince william with the ring. take a look. >> with this ring -- >> as shakespeare said, all's well that ends well. they stepped out, the coach and crowds waiting, a chorus of church bells ringing. the newlyweds waving from their century old open carriage. then from the balcony, the kiss seen around the word. disapointing to the crowd who called for another. the happy crowd consented. the crowd was satisfied with that.
2:02 am
the newspapers here calling the fairy tale wedding. over wed, a world war ii hurricane roared over the crowd. when they rode off into the history books in a car straight out of 1969, an asten martin, a db-6 giving to prince charles. of course, we'll bring you more of the wedding later on, including some moments you might have missed that are particularly special. we begin our broadcast and give coverage tonight to the breaking news back home. a local official in alabama releasing some heartbreaking information this evening. the rubble down there that you're about to look at is tuscaloosa, alabama. just a short time ago, the mayor released figures that made us all catch our breath. the death toll in the city, in this city alone is now 39. nearly a thousand people hurt, more troubling, 446 people still unaccounted for at this hour. 446 unaccounted for, and that is
2:03 am
just in this one single city. block after block. the overhead pictures you're seeing are extraordinary. the tornadoes, including this rare double twister taking at least 238 lives in alabama. 34 in tennessee. 33 in mississippi. and 15 in georgia. expect all those numbers to change and some perhaps all to rise. president obama visiting some of tuscaloosa's hardest hit neighborhoods today. >> i've got to say i've never seen devastation like this. it is heartbreaking. we were just talking to some residents here who were lucky enough to escape alive but have lost everything. they mentioned that their neighbors had lost two of their grandchildren in the process. what you're seeing here is the consequence of just a few minutes of this extraordinarily
2:04 am
powerful storm sweeping through this community. >> it is hard to believe. we have reporters on the ground across the south this evening. let's start with reynolds wolf with the latest from tuscaloosa. so stunning to hear 39 lives have been confirmed lost in tuscaloosa. >> reporter: absolutely. every single one of them precious. it is an amazing thing. we're two days away from when the tornado struck and still the state of alabama is reeling. also here in tuscaloosa, it's the same story destruction everywhere. we've been hearing lots of sirens on and off throughout the day, and what we've been hearing, hammers. we've been hearing chain saws. roads slowly beginning to clear out, people trying to get this city, this state back to life. but i'm not going to lie to you, i grew up here and many people have a very, very heavy heart.
2:05 am
39 lives lost in tuscaloosa. across the state of alabama, you have over 200, well over 200. and that number may extend, not just in the state but across the region and we find more people. we've been talking about how we're hoping for rescue missions, but with every hour and every day that passes, it's going to go from a rescue mission to a recovery mission, anderson. >> we also heard so many amazing stories of people and how they got through the storm, those incredibly horrific minutes that seemed to go on for an eternity. you spoke to someone earlier about how he weathered the storm. i want to play some of that for the viewers. >> when i went outside and looked this way, the tornado just filled the horizon. there was just a spot of daylight on either side and the rest of it was a wall of tornado. it was literally coming directly at me. that's when i ran back into the
2:06 am
house and i grabbed the motorcycle helmet and put it on and got in the tub. the house started to shake violently. i knew at that point i was going to get directly hit. it's a surreal thing because it's like, i am not in a tornado. it just doesn't seem like that just happened. but being inside the bathroom, which had no windows, and i thought i'm going to get trapped in this little room. i didn't know if it was the right thing to do, but i thought if i opened the door, i would have an escape hatch. but when i opened the door, the front of the house flew away and the krispy kreme truck came into the living room and the roof blew off. at that point, the back of the house also blew out and the dogs got sucked out. they were like a kite on a string, but they were tethered to me on their leashes and i was able to hang onto them and push them down.
2:07 am
the rest of the house just fell on us. >> reynolds, where are people staying tonight? people have had their homes destroyed, are their enough shelters for them? >> reporter: there are places of shelter, but the number one way people are finding refuge is with relatives. in alabama, everyone is family. they'll find places in some of their neighbor's homes that are still standing. thy'll stay in other communities that are close by. everyone is going to share the best they can. but it is a very difficult and trying time. for many people, they'll never be able to go home because honestly those homes don't exist. >> reynolds, appreciate that. we'll talk to many of our reporters tonight. 446 people still unaccounted for at this hour. getting around is very difficult. drivers trying to cross northern alabama are being advised to fill up before they enter the state. joining us is the mayor of tuscaloosa. thank you for being with us.
2:08 am
i'm so sorry for all your losses and our thoughts are with you at this hour. at this point, what are the biggest needs that you're trying to meet? >> right now it's search and rescue, anderson. as you alluded to earlier, we have a number of people that are listed as still missing. we're hopeful and prayerful that a large majority of that is just duplicates within our dispatch system. however, we are putting cadaver dog teams throughout the city in a frantic search to find everyone who is unaccounted for. >> and obviously time is of the essence for that. do you have the resources you need? >> we're getting the resources. the governor has granted all 14 requests we've made of the state ema. in talking to the director of fema, i believe that fema in the next few day also be putting a lot of resources into tuscaloosa.
2:09 am
we've got thousands of people without homes. we're facing a humanitarian crisis in the days ahead if we're not able to find temporary and permanent shelter for everyone that's displaced. >> how many people do you have displaced right now who are still in need of shelter? obviously this is going to go on for some time. >> well, we estimate that there's thousands of individuals who either had their houses destroyed or severely damaged. if that is the case, we're going to have to really work hard to find temporary housing and transition into permanent housing. this is a catastrophic event. we're talking about a 5.9-mile path that in some parts was a half mile to mile wide. over 15,000 people in the path of this storm experienced some sort of damage to their home. >> it's hard to wrap your mind around. mr. mayor, appreciate your time tonight. we'll obviously continue to check in with you in the days and weeks ahead. thank you very much. when we come back, the clues weather deblgttives are looking for to determine how powerful these storms actually were. the early estimates just makes your breath away.
2:10 am
let us know what you think on facebook and twitter. i'll be trying to tweet tonight, as well. later, the royal recap, including the kiss, so nice they tried it twice. ♪ [ male announcer ] in 2011, at&t is at work, building up our wireless network all across america. we're adding new cell sites... increasing network capacity, and investing billions of dollars to improve your wireless network experience. from a single phone call to the most advanced data download, we're covering more people in more places than ever before in an effort to give you the best network possible. at&t. rethink possible. pants pockets... and anyone, anywhere who would hide our precious coins. we're coming for what's ours.

2:13 am
again, breaking news. new figures from the mayor of tuscaloosa, alabama. 39 killed this that city, chillingly, more than 400 people still unaccounted for. that may be duplications in their system that they haven't confirmed yet, but let's certainly hope that's the case. it speaks not only to how many tornadoes hit the south, but how powerful some were. f-5s, the worst of the worst, that kind that wipe out entire small towns. right now a team of weather experts are on the ground there in many of those places trying to determine what hit them. rob marciano joins us now. he's joins us from tuscaloosa. you spent the day with the national weather service trying to determine tornado strength. what did you learn? >> reporter: well, i learned that it's a slow and arduous
2:14 am
process. forensic meteorology, they have to get in there and see how a structure is built before they can determine how it was ripped apart. i went out with tim marshal, considered to be the rock star of this type of work. he helped develop the enhanced fujita scale, the scale we use today. he doesn't have official word of what this tornado was which came from mississippi, through tuscaloosa, and headed into north georgia. likely an ef-3 if not ef-4. there is an ef-5 with winds of 200 miles an hour across smithfield, mississippi. so many large, powerful storms, anderson. >> rob, this is obviously the third night we've been covering this storm, and i've had it explained to me. just try to explain it again why so many tornadoes were taking place so close to one another.
2:15 am
>> reporter: an extraordinary event. most people know this time of year you get that hot, humid air from the gulf of mexico and pushes of cold air from canada. you get dry air moving in and you have a fairly strong jet stream, which we've had and had all year with this la nina. what made this particular instance different was that in the morning, there was a squall line that came ahead of the front, and that knocked out a lot of power to a lot of folks around here. they didn't really get the warning because of that power outage. later in the day, these super cells developed individually. when they develop like that individually, they have the ability to take their own form and develop as a storm system in and of themselves and that's when these supercells can drop these twisters. a record day of over 200 tornadoes across several states. >> just devastating. rob, appreciate the reporting.
2:16 am
thank you. late word from the white house, president obama declaring a major disaster exists in the state of mississippi, including smithfield, hit by one of the strongest tornadoes. martin savidge joins now. what's the scene there? >> reporter: it's absolute devastation. at least half the town is devastated or destroyed according to public officials. this is the post office. it's just one of many public buildings that were destroyed completely. right next door, city hall, wiped out. next to that is the playstation, it too is wiped out. the only funeral home in town is gone. the general store is gone, as is the only grocery store across the street, that too has been destroyed. the seat of government and basically the commercial heart of this community has been ripped out. you've got 13 people dead and 24 missing.
2:17 am
maybe not significant numbers, but talking about a town of an 850 people. so really the guts of this town have been torn out, and many people are wondering if they will, in fact, be able to rebuild, whether this city will be able to recover. the federal money coming in no doubt will help them to some respect. it's going to clear out the debris and allow them to put up fema trailers for those who have no insurance or unable to put a roof over their head. >> are they still searching for people who may be trapped in the wreckage in smithfield? >> reporter: they are, they are. in fact, the coroner, who i was speaking to, outlined a rather horrific scenario. in this part of the country, it's not practical and many people don't have basements. so they build storm shelters and you put them in the backyard or near the house. and there are a lot of people who have them and use them.
2:18 am
the problem is, this storm kicked up so much debris, tossed over such a great distance, they fear there are some people who they still be trapped inside the shelters they went to, because debris has fallen on top and they were unable to get out. they are sifting through, they are using heavy equipment. they are still searching at this hour in this town. >> so many relatives in mississippi, just an unbelievable tragedy for so many people. thank you very much. coming up next, our coverage of the royal wedding. the kiss, the second kiss and all the details you might have missed. and the ongoing party happening right now at buckingham palace. and kate is changing into her party dress. isha sesay has the latest on that. also tonight, donald trump dropping multiple f bombs during a speech. we'll show you what he said. we'll be right back. ♪

well, it was certainly a night for parties and after parties here in london for the royal family and it's now 3:25 a.m. here in london and in buckingham palace, the party still continues. we'll get details from isha sesay in a moment, including a look at the evening dress. but first tom foreman joins us with a "360" bulletin. the white house has slammed a new sanction on syrian leaders, including a freeze on assets and a ban on doing business in the u.s.

2:26 am
>> we know that this was the hottest ticket in town to get an invite to the evening festivities at buckingham palace. just behind me, i should tell you that in the last couple of minutes, we've seen a number of buses and cars coming out, so we don't know if the party is wrapping up. it kicked off around 7:00 p.m. local time. it was an invite for 300 of prince william and catherine's closest friends and family. this was the one where there was going to be dinner, dancing and prince harry had been heavily involved in how things turned out. we heard one of the rooms is being turned into a disco. there might be a disco ball hanging from the ceiling. but this is a party hosted by prince charles, that everyone wanted to be at because this is where they were going to get the speeches. the speech from prince harry, the prince's brother, which we heard was probably going to make prince william blush. the queen is not in residence. she's left for the weekend.
2:27 am
so the kids have the full run of the place, anderson. >> so i thought this was going to go like -- i guess it's 3:30 a.m. in the morning. i guess the party is winding down, it's not too shabby. >> not too shabby. it's almost 3:30 in the morning here. i'm sorry, we don't know whether -- what the status of things are, because we haven't been able to see into those buses and cars coming out. there are still paparazzi snapping at any vehicle coming through. >> a survivor's breakfast. do we know if they -- what do they call them, bacon buddies? >> that's for the survive's breakfast, anderson. it's what you get if you make it through all the drinking and all the debauchery. it's a kind of trophy for surviving.
2:28 am
>> i was forced to eat a bacon buddy earlier in the day. believe me, it's -- i don't recommend it. coming up, the royal wedding moments you might have missed or perhaps didn't notice. some great little moments like prince henry said to his brother as kate -- what he said. or the little bridesmaid, i don't know if you saw this picture, who was not interested in the kiss. look at that face. just wanted some peace and quiet. the greatest moments you might have missed coming up as our coverage continues from london. impressive resume. thank you.

2:31 am
2:32 am
this, of course, was right after the ceremony as they left westminister abbey, heading across to buckingham palace, in the 1902 coach built for edward vii back in 1902, meant for his coronation. really a wonderful moment. the bride whispering to her husband as she got into the carriage, i'm so happy. here in london, it was a day full of tradition, full of joy, and really an iconic moment. we wanted to take a look at some of the other details, little moments that you might have missed, the surprises that made it a very sweet and personal day. the wedding cake, take a look at this, an eight-tiered traditional fruitcake with 900 iced flowers. there was also a groom's cake requested by prince william, a chocolate biscuit cake. mmmm, chocolate.
2:33 am
the couple ditched the carriage and left buckingham palace in an asten martin convertible left by prince charles, which was a 21st birthday present from his parents. it's been converted to run on bioethanol. and the license plate, just wed. in front of the car, l, that's a learner's tag. before they hopped in the asten martin, they enjoyed a remarkable day full of ceremony and tradition. again, here's isha sesay. >> it's one of the most anticipated moments when a groom sees his bride for the first time. but with all eyes on catherine, you might not have noticed prince william standing with his back to the congregation, wanting to be the last one to see her.
2:34 am
he waited for his cue from his brother, harry, as she approached the final stretch, he whispered, "she's here now." the best kept secret was revealed to the world and her prince, designed by sarah burton for alexander the queen. it was the perfect mix of modern and traditional. but there was some things that you couldn't see. a blue ribbon was sewn inside the dress to represent something blue. her earrings were something new. and surprisingly, something borrowed was from the queen. a diamond entrusted tiara, made in 1936 for the queen mother. although we couldn't hear him, the groom melted hearts around the world, when he leaned over and said to his bride, you look beautiful. 4 then he said to his
2:35 am
father-in-law, it's a small family affair. the ceremony went off without a hitch. you may have missed the moment of nervous laughter when the prince had to wrestle kate's wring onto her finger. rest assured, he got it on. the happy couple left the abbey and made their way into the 1902 carriage, where the princess catherine said to her prince, i'm so happy. she wasn't the only one. even the queen was pleased. upon arriving at buckingham palace, she was overheard on camera saying, the wedding was amazing. when they were introduced to the country on the balcony of buckingham palace, you have to watch closely as the princess was taken aback as she mouthed "oh, wow." then there was the moment that sealed the deal as the hundreds of thousands chanted "kiss."
2:36 am
prince william appeared to ask his wife, are you ready, shall we kiss? the crowd erupted with cheers, except one young girl. with all eyes on the newlyweds, the 3-year-old bridesmaid didn't seem to care she had the best seat in the house for a kiss that would go down in history. she just wanted some peace and quiet. many thought the excitement was over. but then the couple did the unthinkable. the prince prepared to ask his princess if she would give one more kiss. she obliged, giving the crowd what they wanted, a historic second kiss. as they made their way inside, the bride and broom were the last to say adieu. then they turned around one last time to take it all in.
2:37 am
>> really remarkable moments. isha sesay joins me again with richard quest. let me start off, what was your favorite moment, richard? >> for me, it was when they're in the abbey and the first time they looked t each other and you just realized it was a couple in love. the next generation of monarchy, this was the restoration, if you like, of the house of windsor. >> did it reenergize the monarchy in a way? >> there is no question, to quote or paraphrase, the torch has been passed. the monarchy has been given a new lease of life. >> you were with us part of the day. what was for you the most memorable iconic moment? >> you know, i think the most extraordinary moment was sitting here when the duke and duchess
2:38 am
came, and we had this prime position and saw all the carriages and just that sense of pageantry. >> to see them in real life, there's something kind of shocking about it. i was really getting into it. once you see them in person, you're like, wow, they're real and they're right there. >> isha? >> the exchange of the vows. it felt like such an intimate moment. the sense that you felt that it really was, and it's a man and a woman take thing momentous step. they just happen to be a royal and a commoner. >> i have to tell you, that point you just made about when you see them, that never goes away. every time you see the queen, i've covered the queen for years, and every time you see the queen, you think, they are real. >> you just don't see people in such regalia, of these ridiculous hats, these uniforms.
2:39 am
there's something surreal about the whole thing. i say ridiculous affectionately. i'm sorry, prince andrew's daughter had like antlers on her head. >> one of his more whimsical moments. i think british women can get away with a little bit of fantasy on the head. >> did the dress live up to -- >> it was superb. it was perfect for the occasion. it was so majestic, but had a little bit of modernity. it had that incredible silhouette. when she first came into the abbey, it had that poetry in motion to it.
2:40 am
it was exquisite in every way. >> the way they were able to keep the secret, i understand the woman you work for, anna winter, who is sort of the head of the fashion world in the united states, at least probably globally, she was lied to. is this true? >> well -- you know, i think that if sarah burton wasn't a brilliant designer, i might suggest a career on the stage. >> after point blank. >> she denied it, and i must say -- >> anna asked her are you designing the dress? >> and she denied it. it's incredible, because anna staring you down is enough to turn most designers to jelly. i must say, i loved the excitement and the idea that you felt like the groom not seeing the dress until it finally arrived.
2:41 am
it's just incredible. >> to speak to the utility of it, and being the woman on the panel, it felt very perfect and also she could move very easily. >> her dress was obviously very different than diana's dress. we have a comparison just to give you a sense. >> sometimes it feels bad to beat up on the diana dress because it was appropriate at the time. >> i'm not beating up on the dress. >> when she first appeared and you saw her in the car, sort of fish tank windows, you were very much aware of the grace kelly similarities. when she got out of the car, i thought it was very evocative of princess margaret's dress, very similar fabric and very similar car. >> i just want to show pipa, the sister of kate.
2:42 am
i got some people ask where is she wearing white, because i thought only the queen was supposed to wear white. well, isha, richard, haimish, stick around. william and kate making mystery. see who else was there and what sort of hats they wore. we'll be right back. so that was the newlywed's first royal kiss.
2:43 am
2:44 am
2:45 am
so that was the newlywed's first royal kiss. the crowd below, 500,000 people, were not satisfied and began chanting "kiss again, kiss again."
2:46 am
apparently they thought the first kiss was too quick. william and kate were good sports, they gave the crowd what it wanted, a second kiss, not dramatically different from the first, but kind of better and longer. the crowd was satisfied, and because people want to see it again, let's replay them side by side. you can judge for yourself which was better. they looked remarkably relaxed considering it was being broadcast around the world. there's a photo, which is on a lot of the front pages of the british papers tonight. i want to show it to our viewers. it was taken as william is driving catherine away from buckingham palace in the asten martin that his father was given on his 21st birthday. let's put that photo up.
2:47 am
it's a great shot. it's a very kind of youthful, exuberant shot. >> and that sets the tone of what this was all about. a modern couple, who have fallen in love, got married and have lived together and happy together, and that says it all. the fact they drove out of the palace on their own, with a few security guards behind them. but that was really the tone that they wanted to set. >> they drove to clarence house and got back to buckingham palace where we believe a party may be going on. you pointed out, we were looking at buckingham palace and it's very dark on the front and we were thinking maybe the party is not happening anymore. but this is just a facade. >> the facade is mostly administrative. and then the back is where all the state rooms are. >> so they don't want commoners seeing what's going on. >> they want the lovely view of the garden. >> we also had two other photos because there was a change of
2:48 am
dresses. i know you want to talk about it, because i have no idea what to say about either of these dresses. kate middleton changed into a dress and pippa, her sister change sbd a dress, as well. that was the second dress. that's pippa's dress. is that kate middleton? >> no, that's pippa. >> kate was in the same silhouette as her wedding dress but strapless with a little shrug. >> which was also white, i guess. >> william wears black tie. they're going to party. they're going to have their knees up, as we say here in england. >> you call it a knees up? >> he doesn't get out much. >> you go dancing and you pick
2:49 am
your knees up. >> i have no idea. wow, you guys are racy here. the other thing i don't understand -- i've been learning a lot of new words. there's supposed to be this after party that prince harry was throwing there they're serving bacon buddies. i was forced to taste one earlier. i think we have the video of that. >> take just a bite. come on. there you go.
